  • GROWTH, INSTABILITY AND PROFITABILITY OF POTATO PRODUCTION IN EASTERN
           INDIA

    • Authors: Sant Kumar, Nalini Ranjan Kumar, Kingsly Immanuelraj T, Narendra Kumar Pandey
      Abstract: ABSTRACT: This study has examined the historical performance of potato production in eastern India, a key producing
      region. It has utilized the state-level time-series data collated from secondary sources for the period 2000-01 to 2018-19.
      Growth in potato is analyzed employing ACGR, while instability is measured applying index method. Positive and
      significant growth in area, production and productivity of potato has been noticed during study periods (I, II and overall)
      in states, regional and all-India levels. Further, growth during 2010s has weakened over the previous decade at all level.
      Analysis of instability revealed decline in variability in period II over period I, and this infers spread and adoption of
      improved technologies in potato growing states. Economics of potato has shown that net returns per ha increased with
      varying degrees across states during 2008-18. However, a strict vigil is needed on prices and required steps need to be
      taken to save interest of the farmers. Also, attention is drawn to develop and promote site-s pecific improved technologies
      to improve growth and reduce instability.

  • VARIATIONS IN THE MINERAL CONCENTRATION AMONG DIFFERENT POTATO (SOLANUM
           TUBEROSUM L.) ACCESSIONS

    • Authors: Baljeet Singh, Jagdev Sharma, Vinay Bhardwaj, Salej Sood, Sundaresha Siddappa, Umesh Goutam, Dalamu Dalamu, Hemant Kardile, Bhawna Dipta, NK Pandey
      Abstract: A collection of one hundred tetraploid potato accessions was evaluated in relation to the concentrations
      of nine minerals (Fe, Zn, Cu, Mn, Ca, Mg, S, P and K) required for human nutrition. Large amount of variability for
      selected minerals was observed in the germplasm. Significant positive correlations (P < 0.001) were found between Fe-
      Cu (r2=0.41), Zn-Cu (r2=0.46), Mn-K (r2=0.51) and Ca-Mg (r2=0.40), whereas significant negative correlation (P < 0.001) was
      observed between P-K (r2= -0.36). The first two principle components accounted 42.72% of the total observed variations.
      Unweighted pair group method with arithmetic mean (UPGMA) based clustering distinguished the potato accessions into
      different groups based on Gower distances. These results will be useful for developing biofortified potato varieties using
      traditional and modern breeding methods. Moreover, variations in the mineral contents within the potato germplasm
      could also be used for the identification of molecular markers associated with mineral concentrations through genome
      wide association studies (GWAS).

  • OPTIMIZING POTATO PRODUCTIVITY IN FOOD GRAIN-BASED ORGANIC FARMING SYSTEM
           UNDER SPRINKLER IRRIGATION

    • Authors: Sanay Rawal, Pooja Mankar, Satish Kumar Luthra, Mehi Lal, Manoj Kumar, Vijay Kumar Dua, Narendra Kumar Pandey
      Abstract: Field trials were carried during 2013-16 in randomized block design for groundnut-potato-maize+greengram
      system consisting seven organic input treatment combinations. For crop raising, regional recommendations were adopted,
      and their nutritional requirement in various organic treatments was calculated as per their recommended inorganic doses.
      Cultural weed control was followed, and disease-pest management was done through permitted organic means. Observations
      of growth, yield attributes and yield were recorded for all component crops of the system. Process grade tuber yield improved
      from 10.5 t/ha to 18.5 t/ha, while total tuber yield increased from 59.9% to 88.3% from first to third year. Tuber weight
      loss (18.8%) reduced drastically in organic system (IA) over inorganic nutrition (24.5%) at 90 days under ambient storage
      conditions. System productivity of organic system (IA) improved to 91.3% of inorganic nutrition in third year. Organic
      system (IA) observed lower net returns in first year, while improvement was observed in third year as this gap reduced
      to 16.7%. This study suggests that sustainable potato yields can be harnessed in food grain-based cropping systems by
      including leguminous crops and integrating different organic nutrient sources.

  • VARIETAL ADOPTION PATTERN AND ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF POTATO PRODUCTION IN
           SOUTH BIHAR, INDIA

    • Authors: Dhiraj Kumar Singh, Narendra Pandey, Pynbiang Kharumnuid, Ujjwal Kumar, Rohan Raman
      Abstract: Potato is the most important vegetable crop of India and largely grown in Eastern plains of the country.
      Bihar is the third largest potato producing state of India after Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal. However, productivity of
      Bihar is lower than many states due to prevalence of older varieties and limited adoption of improved package of practices
      among farmers. Current study was planned to find out the economic benefits of potato cultivation and adoption pattern
      of different potato varieties in south Bihar. Primary data were collected from farmers of highest potato growing districts
      of South Bihar i.e Nalanda and Patna using survey and personal observation method. Analysis of data revealed that Patna
      and Nalanda together contributed more than 15 per cent of potato production in the state. Moreover, red skinned varieties
      viz. Kufri Sindhuri, C-1, C-40 and Lal Gulab were mostly adopted by farmers in Patna while in case of Nalanda, white
      skinned variety Kufri Pukhraj was adopted by majority (80.6%) of them. Variable cost of potato cultivation was estimated
      to be ` 1.32 lakhs per ha in Nalanda and ` 1.06 lakhs per ha for Patna district. Cost of seed potato had contributed
      more than one third of total cost of cultivation. On an average, farmers earned a gross income of ` 1.8 lakhs/ha and net
      return of ` 61,579/- per ha from potato. The BC ratio ranged from 1.4 to 1.6 in selected districts. It can be concluded that
      enough scope is available for increasing productivity of potato in Bihar by large scale demonstration and adoption of
      high yielding new potato varieties. Moreover, farmers should be motivated to grow their own seed through organization
      of trainings, exposure visits and supply of breeder seed so that seed cost can be minimized to increase economic returns
      from potato.

  • UTILIZATION OF POTATO WASTE FOR PRODUCTION OF BIOETHANOL: A NOVEL
           TECHNOLOGY

    • Authors: Dharmendra Kumar
      Abstract: This study was conducted on the exploration of the potential use of potato as feedstock for bioethanol
      production, through saccharification and fermentation. The saccharification was performed via thermal and enzymatic
      hydrolysis through the use of commercial enzymes such as cellulase, α-amylase, β-amylase and glucoamylosidase. The
      potato mash was mixed with 100 mL distilled water. The mixture was treated with different enzyme concentrations 10
      U, 15 U and 20 U. The mixture was incubated at the temperature of 75 °C and pH 5.0. The saccharification process was
      completed with 10 U of amyloglucosidase at 60 °C, pH 4.5 for 72 h. Samples were withdrawn at different time intervals and
      the ethanol and consumed sugar assays were carried out by YSI Analyser. The use of commercial α-amylase led to higher
      reducing sugars release (69.21 ± 0.34 ± 0.32 g/100 g ) and in the combination of enzymes found the maximum efficiency
      of saccharification i.e. 81.40 ± 0.56 g/100 g. The results showed that the enzymatic treatment led to higher saccharification
      efficiency (81.40%) equivalent to 96% of the maximum theoretical. The fermentation process by using various strains of
      Yeast at different time intervals. The maximum ethanol yield was obtained by Saccharomyces cerevisiae MTCC 178 after
      72 h was 84.19 g/L.

  • IMPACT OF CONCURRENT ELEVATION IN CO2 AND TEMPERATURE ON TUBER YIELD AND
           ASSOCIATED TRAITS OF POTATO GENOTYPES

    • Authors: Prince Kumar
      Abstract: Carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration in the atmosphere is rising continuously and consequently global average
      surface temperature is anticipated to rise in near future which tends to affect tuber yield, associated physiological traits of
      potato. This necessitate to explore some resilient cultivars to counter the adverse impact of anticipated changing climate
      scenario. So, in order to explore such cultivars, an investigation was carried out in open top chambers having controlled
      facility (CO2 and Temperature) at ICAR-CPRS, Jalandhar, Punjab. Two advance stage heat tolerant potato genotypes viz.,
      HT/7-1105 and HT/7-1329 and two commercial varieties, viz., Kufri Surya (heat tolerant) and Kufri Badshah were evaluated
      under three treatments, viz., (i) elevated CO2 (600 ppm) along with elevated temperature (30C rise over ambient); (ii)
      elevated CO2 (600 ppm) and (iii) ambient. Impact of higher temperature with elevated CO2 on tuber yield was negative
      only in Kufri Badshah (-10.17 t/ha). Response to CO2 enrichment, in terms of tuber yield, was positive in case of all the
      genotypes i.e. Kufri Badshah, Kufri Surya, HT/7-1105 and HT/7-1329. These results suggest the overall superiority of Kufri
      Surya and heat tolerant cultivars in terms of productivity under high CO2 and high temperature. Net photosynthesis (PS)
      rate was 34.4 μmol CO2 m-2s-1 under elevated CO2 in Kufri Badshah that reduced to 27.10 μmol CO2 m-2s-1 on exposure to
      high temperature (around 3oC) and CO2. These values were statistically significant over PS rate under ambient conditions.

  • A STUDY ON SOURCES, MANAGEMENT AND REPLACEMENT OF POTATO (SOLANUM
           TUBEROSUM L.) SEED IN WESTERN UTTAR PRADESH

    • Authors: Pynbianglang Kharumnuid
      Abstract: Presently in India, the actual potato yield is far below the potential yield. Enhancing the seed replacement rate
      is one of the important strategies to narrow the gap between the actual and potential yields. Hence, the present study was
      conducted to examine the sources, replacement rate and management of potato seed and constraints for availing quality seed
      in Western Uttar Pradesh. The primary data was collected from 85 randomly selected farmers of Bulandshahar and Meerut
      districts. The study revealed that the Kufri Bahar, Kufri Pukhraj and Kufri Khyati were the major potato varieties. Local
      varieties were still prevalent among farmers. The major seed sources were farm saved seeds, fellow farmers and formal
      sources like department of agriculture, SAUs and research institutes. Farmers have good knowledge of seed management
      activities like maintenance of spacing, seed rate, seed retention period and followed them properly. The overall seed
      replacement rate for certified seed was around 39 percent. There was a direct relationship between seed replacement rate
      and farm size. The overall seed replacement rate of seed of improved potato varieties was about 92 percent. The identified
      constraints were high cost of quality seed, poor quality of seed, lack of proper storage and transportation facilities, lack of
      seed of required varieties and lack of information about improved varieties. The study suggested that extension strategies
      and institutional mechanisms should be formulated for popularization of the new varieties and reliable seed sources and
      for regular supply of certified and quality seeds to all categories of farmers to enhance the seed replacement rate.

  • INFLUENCE OF INTEGRATED CROP MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGY ON POTATO PRODUCTIVITY,
           PROFITABILITY, ENERGY DYNAMICS AND CARBON FOOTPRINTS IN NORTH-WESTERN
           HIMALAYAS

    • Authors: ANIL K. CHOUDHARY
      Abstract: An ‘on-farm’ adaptive research study was conducted during 2006-2011 in wet-temperate north-western Himalayas
      to evaluate the effects of integrated crop management (ICM) technology on potato tuber productivity, profitability, energy
      dynamics and carbon footprints. This ‘On-farm’ field study revealed that the ICM technology imbedded with improved
      potato varieties like Kufri Shailja and Kufri Giriraj along with balanced nutrition (120:80:60 kg NPK/ha & 20 t FYM/
      ha) and proper crop management and plant protection measures manures, led to higher productivity (27.8%), net returns
      (34.5%) and bio-energy production (58.1%) compared to farmers’ practice (FP). The ICM resulted in slightly higher carbon
      footprints (0.08 kg CE kg-1 fresh potato tuber yield) compared to FP (0.069 kg CE kg-1 fresh potato tuber yield) due to better
      crop management and higher input-use. However, the total carbon output under ICM was ~31.3% higher over FP, indicating
      that ICM may prove as a viable mitigation strategy to climate-change. Overall, ICM is a better option over FP w.r.t. potato
      productivity, profitability, net-income gains, bio-energy and carbon output in wet-temperate north-western Himalayas.

  • EVALUATION OF NEWER INSECTICIDES FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF MYZUS PERSICAE
           (SULZER)

    • Authors: kailash chandra naga
      Abstract: Green peach aphid, Myzus persicae (Sulzer) (Aphididae: Hemiptera) is one of important pest which causes
      direct and indirect losses to many horticultural crops. To deal with this pest insecticide application remains the principal
      method to avoid its losses. Therefore, the present study was aimed to evaluate two insecticides with novel mode of action
      as an alternative to the existing insecticides used for management of M. persicae. Further leaf dip method was followed
      to evaluate the test chemicals against M. persicae. Probit analysis and LC50 data suggest that flonicamid is as effective as
      imidacloprid. The flonicamid also has different mode of action and can be used as an alternate chemical to manage M.
      persicae in potato and other crop ecosystems. This is the first study that indicates insecticidal resistance in M. persicae
      population in India.

  • EFFICACY AND ECONOMIC OF SULFOXFLOR 12% SL AGAINST SUCKING INSECT PESTS OF
           POTATO

    • Authors: Anuj Bhatanagar
      Abstract: The field efficacy of sulfoxaflor 12% SL insecticide was evaluated against sucking insect pests (whiteflies
      and leafhoppers) on seven popular potato cultivars (Kufri Chipsona-1, Kufri Anand, Kufri Chipsona-3, Kufri Surya, Kufri
      Neelkhant, Kufri Bahar and Kufri Khyati) during 2018-19 and 2019-20. Results showed that, sulfoxaflor 12% SL exhibited
      excellent activity against Bemisia tabaci (Gennadius) and Amrasca beguttula beguttula Isida during both the years. The
      whitefly and leaf hopper population were low on protected potato cultivars as compared to unprotected cultivars. Similarly,
      highest pooled mean tuber yield (49.33 t/ha) was recorded of K. Khyati when crop was protected by three sprays of
      sulfoxaflor 12% SL followed by K. Anand (46.90 t/ha) and K. Bahar (40.56 t/ha). By working out cost benefit ratio it is
      evident that K. Khyati ranked first indicating the maximum return of Rs. 3.18 per rupee invested followed by K. Chipsona-3
      with Rs.2.54 and K. Anand Rs.2.47. The present study suggests the use of sulfoxaflor 12% SL is preferred insecticide and
      could be incorporated in integrated pest management of sucking insect pests of potato.

  • UPDATES ON MOLECULAR MARKERS LINKED TO POTATO VIRUS Y (PVY) RESISTANCE
           GENES IN POTATO

    • Authors: Vikas Mangal, Salej Sood, Baswaraj Raigond, Dalamu Dalamu, Ajay Kumar Thakur, Vinod Kumar, Baljeet Singh, Ashwani Kumar, Rajender Singh, Vinay Bhardwaj
      Abstract: Potato is the leading non-grain food product in the world and stands third important food crop after wheat
      and rice. It is a future crop for ensuring food security in the developing world but it is affected by several biotic and
      abiotic factors which reduce the total yield. Among the biotic stresses, PVY is also the worldwide problem in potato causing
      serious damage. PVYO, PVYN, and PVYC are the main strains of PVY causing losses to potato cultivation. The complex
      strains of the PVY are responsible for different foliar and tuber symptoms in potato. The recombination between different
      strains creates new harmful strains (PVYNTN, PVYN:O, PVYN-Wi) which from the last many years becomes a serious problem.
      Two types of resistance genes (HR and ER) are mapped on different potato species for PVY strains. Extreme resistance
      genes are reported in S. tuberosum gp. andigenum (Ryadg), S. stoloniferum (Rysto and Ryfsto) and S. chacoense (Rychc). Likewise,
      hypersensitive response (HR) genes are found in S. tuberosum (Nytbr, Ny-1, and Ny-2), S. sparsipilum (Ncspl), and Sarpo
      Mira (Ny-Smira). Ryadg and Ny-2 genes were reported on chromosome no XI, Rysto and Ryfsto on chromosome no XII, Nytbr
      and Ncspl chromosome no IV, and Rychc, Ny-1, and Ny-Smira on chromosome no IX. Till now various molecular markers
      (AFLP, SCAR, RAPD, STS, CAPS, and RGL) linked to different PVY resistance genes are reported in various populations.
      Marker-based selection in the breeding programme can hasten the breeding process and reduce dependency on taking up
      chemical or other management practices.

  • STRENGTHENING THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT AND COMMERCIALIZATION
           PORTFOLIO OF INSTITUTE POTATO TECHNOLOGIES

    • Authors: RAJENDER SINGH
      Abstract: An ecosystem of vibrant intellectual property (IP) creation and commercialization will not only promote the
      culture of creativity and innovation among researchers but also enhance the economic development of the country. The
      value and economic reward for the owners of IP rights come only from their commercialization and there is need to promote
      the public sector initiative for IP commercialization. In the recent decade, ICAR-CPRI has made concerted efforts for the
      creation of IP assets, their maintenance and commercialization. IP protection status of the institute comprises the registration
      and protection of 22 potato varieties through PPV&FRA, filing of 22 patents, 12 designs and two trademarks. In the last
      decade, after the establishment of the institute technology management unit (ITMU), the institute has licensed around 16
      technologies to more than 75 entrepreneurs & earned revenue of around 22 million INR. More and more entrepreneurship
      should be encouraged, so that the financial value of IPRs protection may be captured. This study demonstrates the
      intellectual property management and commercialization status of the institute in the last decade.
